Vancouver’s newest Mexican restaurant Ophelia has now officially opened its doors in the former location of WildTale Olympic Village.

The 165 West 2nd Avenue concept is brought to us by the folks behind WildTale and The Flying Pig eateries.

The space has the bones of its predecessor, but it has been adorned with items representing Latin culture and influences, including whimsical, colourful wooden carvings called Alebrijes, luchador masks, and two murals by Mexican artist Saicker (César Alegría).

At the helm of Ophelia’s kitchen is Executive Chef Francisco Higareda, who named the eatery after his mother.

This spot is currently open for dinner service daily at 4 pm, be sure to check it out if you’re in the neighbourhood.
